? >> reporter: well, craig, the ntsb investigators were still pouring over that fuselage that burned out, broken fuselage, still sitting on the field off runway 28 left at san francisco international airport. and when you look at how much damage there is to that plane, the fuselage entirely gutted by fire, the tail section broken off, it is amazing to realize that a lot of people just simply walked away. until it landed at san francisco international airport, asiana flight 214 had a routine 10 1/2 hour flight from seoul, south korea. at 11:27 a.m. pacific time, the boeing 777 carrying 291 passengers and 16 crew was on its final approach to runway 28 left. some passengers said they felt it was coming in too low. witnesses said the plane's tail struck the seawall beyond the end of the runway before the rest of the fuselage slammed down on the pavement. passengers described the wild ride. >> we hit pretty hard. at that point, i think we're going to fly again. but it will be just like -- starting to take off thing and then we crash back hard. >> it was a loud noise and the whole plane shook. >> the

and they will give us more information. what is interesting the ntsb gave us a time line of the last seven seconds of the crash. the crew anyhow they were going too slow and low. there were a number of indication and tried to abort the landing, the landing gear hit the jetty. and we had a tail section that broke off and the video that continues to come in from amateur videos from cell phones and other ways and means and she a dramatic slamming down and bouncing of the jet. it is amazing that it stayed together. we get first responder stories and everything from two of those inflatable slides that you see on the seat back if you look at the security card. two of those inflated inside of the jet and they had to use an a x to free the people underthem. and exacto comboifs used to cut people out. and so these stories continue to come out. we'll hear about that in the next hour and half. we'll update the conditions. this investigation continues to go forward. they are getting a lot of information. that runway where the fuselage sits is still there. the planes a arriving are not normal. >> adam thank yo

the aircraft and think about all the other people who are coming behind you. >> reporter: the ntsb says because this is a foreign crew, there was no legal obligation to drug test them, and they were not drug tested after the fact. by the way, having 28 left closed has created problems here at sfo. they have delays running up to an hour or so. 70-plus cancellations today alone. brian, the ntsb says they may take another week or so to continue to look at this aircraft that's out on the runway. back to you. >> tom costello leading our coverage starting off tonight on this situation in san francisco. tom, thanks. >>> those three young women held for a decade in a house in cleveland, ohio have broken their silence, two months since they were freed. they have made public video statements in which they talk about their brand new lives and the support they've received since their release. our report tonight from our national correspondent kate snow. >> reporter: we've known them only vaguely. the thumbs up from gina dejesus. a single photo of amanda berry. she was a 16-year-old girl when she was taken

. good morning. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. well, the ntsb is learning more about what happened in the cockpit right before asiana flight 214 crashed. they interviewed the pilots and say there's no indication they declared an emergency and the airlines pilots association is now lashing out at the ntsb. they say the agency is fueling speculation the pilots were at fault before all the facts are known. bigad shaban has more on the investigation. >> reporter: federal investigators are focusing on the final seconds of asiana airline flight 214. the boeing 777 apparently came in too low and too slow during landing saturday and crashed at san francisco international airport. >> there were three pilots in the cockpit at the time of the crash. >> reporter: the pilot sitting in the left seat was still in training, and it was his first landing at san francisco in a 777. next to him sat his instructor, a senior pilot, who has logged more than 3,000 hours flying that type of plane. but it was his first flight as an instructor pilot. >> this was the first time that he and the flying

san francisco. claudia? actually, right now we are going to go ahead and take the ntsb pre presser already in progress. let's listen in. it looks like right now they are preparing for that presser. we a we are going to get some new information right now as we said when we came in with the show. 130 people injured. and rick, you know, we were tacking about this earlier, by looking at the plane, the back of the plane gone, two people that you know, were killed. could it possibly be members of the crew who were in the back of the plane? we have not really heard anything new on that yet. two dead, dozens injured, many of them critical. >> that is right, it's a crash that took place around 11:30 this morning local time. the plane originated in south korea and was flying to san francisco. and it was on approach coming in when according to eyewitnesss. the plane was coming in a little low as it was approaching the runway, it clipped the runway and the tale of the plane broke off and then, you can see, it skidded quite a good distance, there's the tale, that is right where it made impact.
coming in, that this could have been a lot worse. now, first team of investigators from the ntsb due to arrive here around midnight and will spend next few days out of runway 28 l that begins right at the waters edge that. is where this plane was attempting to land right around 11:30 this afternoon, when it crashed, once, possibly twice with a thud, lost the tail and skidded down the runway most of the fuselage was ripped or burned away. amazingly everyone escaped we're told two soul who's perished were found outside of the plane. now, the passengers included 141 chinese, 77 south koreans and 61 u.s. citizens. the nationality and gender of the two who died and those now critically injured are unknown. but we know 182 people are being treated in nine bay area hospitals a dozen injuries said to be very critical. the number does include several children. now, federal agents have secured the crash site. they have ruled out terrorism as a cause of the plane crash. but we are getting conflicting accounts we know that the pilot did not radio in a distress or s.o.s.call and witness reports h
of the ntsb chairman and the investigator in charge examining the interior of the plane. they have the black boxes that are filled with crucial information about what happened on that flight and they are already on their way back to washington for analysis. this morning in korea, the ceo of asiana airlines held a news conference saying he does not believe the crash was caused by mechanical failure. though he refused to blame the pilots, all of whom he said were highly trained. >> very interesting. a slightly confusing press conference there. abc news has team coverage on this developing story. and start with cecilia vega in san francisco. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan and bianna. we know that there were 61 american citizens on board flight 214. we're learning more about the other passengers, 30 of them were children. investigators are saying this is nothing short of a crash landing. as for those who witnessed the whole thing, they say it's a miracle so many survived. the nightmare happened in the final seconds of a 10 1/2-hour flight from seoul, south korea, to san francisco.
. >> reporter: that's right. let's look at a close up view of this wrackage from ntsb's perspective. you can see the investigators looking at the area around it and there is this remarkable debris field. you are seeing parts of the seawall that the plane hit and parts of the plane all along runway 28l. here is the landing gear in the middle of the debris field. the pilot landing this 777 had 9700 hours flying other planes but was in training on this particular type of aircraft on this flight. he had only 43 hours in the cockpit of the 777 and landing this type of plane here at sfo for the first time. now the question is whether that played a role in the accident. new video taken from the termal at sfo shows the seconds after asiana airlines flight 214 came to rest in the dirt beside 28l as new details emerge about the pilot of that plane. he was training to pilot a boeing 777 and this was the first time he piloted this type of airplane in to land at sfo. >> the approach proceeds normally as they descend. there is no discussion of any aircraft anomalies or concerns. >> reporter: that data comes f
, if it was consistent with their process or procedures or if there was any deviations. >> reporter: ntsb investigators say the preliminary findings are that the engines were operating as they should have in the 1:20 seconds leading up to the crash. >> both engines were producing power at the time of impact. >> reporter: and they are trying to figure out why an exit slide seems to have malfunctioned. >> there have been interviews with flight attendants and witnesses that slides deployed inside of the aircraft. we need to understand why that happened. >> reporter: investigators confirmed once again that flight 214 was going 122 miles per hour at the time hit the seawall and run way instead of the recommended 157 miles per hour. at 6:00, we'll tell you about what investigators say about who is supposed to monitor speed. live near sfo. >>> ntsb investigators are looking at all images and angles of the crash landing of flight 214. i want to show you now a new animated simulation. this is based on witness accounts. it shows the 777 coming well short of the runway. it hits the sea wall, rips off the tail. an
share their story of heroism. amazing tale, too. good evening. ntsb wrapped up the first meeting with the cockpit crew. interview will continue tomorrow. and we are learning that the pilot and co-pilot did not communicate problems until seconds before the crash. board is looking at the pilot experience as part of the investigation. ntsb also revealed that as the plane approached sfo it was traveling 40 miles an hour slower than the target approach speed. the pilot of asian flight 214 was make the maiden voyage landing that type of plane at that airport. david with what happened in the critical 7 seconds when it all unravelled. >> new image of those fleeing passengers determined to get out alive after asian air liens flight 214 crashed as it came in for landing. you can see the emergency chute in flight. passengers sliding down them. racing to get away from the plane. family capturing the images stunned. at what they were seeing. >> they are running out. >> cloud of dark smoke growing some of the passengers can be seen running for their lives to the end of the runway. >> e
and arrived just before 2:00 this morning. >>> the ntsb will interview the remaining two pilots. two of the pilots were interviewed yesterday. investigators want to know why the plane was flying too slowly as it approached sfo. they are also looking into possible issues involving fatigue, illness and medication. the ceo arrives today and families of the crash victims arrived overnight. >>> the wreckage of asiana flight 214 is still out on the tarmac. appears to be blocked behind trucks and other barriers alongside run way 28 left. we have team coverage. cate caugurian is at sfo with new details about the investigation. >> reporter: good morning, michelle. we are expected to get those new details we're told at this afternoon's news conference. at this point we have more questions than answers. as far as the investigation goes, we know that they will be interviewing two more pilots again today. we know both u.s. and korean investigators sat with two pilots last night. why was asiana flight 214 approaching sfo at such a slow speed when it crashed? the plane was going nearly 40 miles per
. surviver ben levee tells me, this journey back to the tarmac was organized by ntsb. >> what was it like ben? >> not so much to see the plane. we're so far, we basically came to rest where most planes are landing. how much we missed the runway, which i think was pretty scary. >> reporter: he is most grateful for the opportunity to talk to other survivers about the ordeal at the sight, and afterwards back at the hotel. >> just talking to other passengers gives you a fuller picture of what may have happened. others that got off that had their babies on the carry on strapped on. >> reporter: 30 families plus passengers made the trip. some were emotional and cried. he says returning to the crash site was a form of closure. >> kind of parting with it maybe. >> saying goodbye to it? >> yeah. >> reporter: he says there has not been good communication with asiana airline officials. he tells me he hopes to have a re reunion with all the survivers eventually. amber lee, ktvu, channel 2 news. >> we've obtained 911 calls to the highway patrol from asiana passengers after evacuating the plane. one is wor
